India, Internet, Sex

India becomes first country to block ENTIRE .xxx domain

It’s less than a month since the .xxx domain was approved for the adult entertainment industry, but now India has decided to ban all websites using that particular TLD. The distribution of pornography is illegal in India, sothe move had been expected, and a number of other Asian countries are expected to follow suit.

The .xxx domain is entirely voluntary, with sex sites under no obligation to move away from the .com, co.uk or other TLD’s they have traditionally used. In fact, you can argue that the whole .xxx thing is entirely pointless? Why bother? Oh, apparently the new .xxx domains will cost more than most others. But if countries start banning them, who on earth will want to use them?
